of the damage claims. governor cuomo and i have spent hours and hours speaking to individual members of the house and senate, to answer their questions. we worked with president obama and his administration and satisfied them of the urgent need of the $60 billion aid package. this was good enough for 62 united states senators of both parties to vote for this package. this was good enough for majority of the house of representatives. it overcame all the factual challenges, it just could not overcome the toxic interl politics of the house majority. finally, new jersey and new york are perennially among the most generous states in the nation to our fellow states. we vote for disaster relief for other states in need, we are donor states, spending -- sending much more to washington, d.c. than we ever get back in federal spending. despite this history of unbridled generosity, in our hour of desperate need, we have been left waiting for help, six times longer than the victims of katrina, with no end in sight. americans are tired of the palace intrigue and political partisanship of this cong
, governor cuomo and i will not stop fighting together to see that justice is done and our citizens suffering is finally addressed by this congress. >> that news conference wrapping up just a couple minutes ago. happening after governor christie spoke with president obama about the lack of a spending solution for hurricane sandy victims. here's what's some house members had to say about the failure of oufer republican leadership to bring a standing aid bill to the floor before the end of the session. this is from earlier today. >> the fact is as congresswoman lowey said within 10 days of can treeno $60 billion was appropriated. that number ended up going well over $100 billion. there is now nine weeks and nothing has been appropriated at all by this congress from the people of new york, new jersey, connecticut, long island which i represent. and the fact is that over the last five, six, seven weeks we did everything that the republican leadership asked us to do. governor cuomo came down. i was at the meeting. he met with the speaker. governor christie came down, he met with the speaker. mayor
those items are not in the house bill. the mayor, the governors, both christie and cuomo came and made sure, they itemized everything and those items were not included in the house bill. >> all right, so those are taken out. that's one good thing. we're in an environment where a fiscal cliff deal comes along and nobody's really thrilled about what they got, but we did get something that increases deficits, so people say how can we go no matter how good the cause and spend another $60 billi billion. >> emergency disaster funding have always been different. americans. and when americans are in trouble because of a national disaster, we come to one another's aids. what we were concerned about, democrats and republicans, individuals from new york, connecticut, new jersey, but we also had colleagues come from around the country, is that why change the standards now? because the standards have been the same. when katrina happened, let's do it. within ten days. $60 billion was there. when there's a small town, where there's a tornado or some other national disaster, we say let's do it. that's
case on substance. we have all read the information that came down from governor christie and cuomo line by line, this is all about people who in dire straits who are, who have lost their homes and businesses. 100,000 in new jersey have filed for unemployment insurance attributable to super storm sandy. it is devastation the likes of which we have never seen in our part of the country. we do have support. the amendment will be offered for about $33 billion to get us to the $60 billion. >> chairman rogers will offer $ 27 billion amendment. following his amendment i will offer the $33 billion. that will make the $60 billion, the round number. i feel the assurances we had from both the speaker and the majority leader cantor are ironclad. we will proceed. this recognizes the hard ache and misery both of our states or the region that suffered which has been as the governor emphasized, at the press conference the last hour or two, it has been over 66 days. >>gregg: the bickering over the hurricane sandy aid bill continues on capitol hill. >> congress last night avoided sending the finance
